Samsung Smooth released for Verizon

Samsung Smooth released for Verizon
Verizon seems to have given up on the Samsung U340, releasing an updated model called the Samsung Smooth U350. The main difference is the styling of the device, with the addition of Mobile Web, VZ Navigator, and VCast services. The remaining features are still the same: VGA camera, 128x160 pixel internal display, and no microSD memory card slot. Pricing is $29.99 after $50 rebate with a 2 year contract and $99.99 after rebate with a 1 year contract. At this point, we not sure who would buy it, since the Samsung Gleam U700 and U550 offer more features at a lower price (free with 2 year contract).

Had this for a couple weeks in the PrePay bundles. Sucks losing the u340, great free phone to sell. Some customers want it free that day and not go through a rebate process. Gleam is off the rebates, which hurts to push that, probably wont get anymore in anyway.

Unfortunately, you have to accomodate all levels of society. Not everyone wants or needs a smartphone, PDA, or feature rich device, either because of price or capability. Of course, that doesn't keep every village idiot from buying a Blackberry....
